    Even Wait is a BIOS timing function accurate to a single microsecond.

    It's INT 15, Service 83h. You should be able to find details of it

    in any good assembly book. There are some drawbacks, however:


    You can only set one Even Wait timing at a time.

    It can only handle up to lengths of about 70 minutes.

    Win95 seems to like to use it. Hence, it may cause problems

    at times with Win95.
